Dennis Morris Named Tight End of the Year by the College Football Performance Awards

Jan. 7, 2010

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Louisiana Tech's Dennis Morris was named the top tight end in the nation by the College Football Performance Awards Thursday. The honor comes after a stellar senior season in which Morris was also named an All-American.

Morris finished his senior year at LA Tech with 38 catches for 623 yards and he had a national-leading 12 receiving touchdowns among tight ends this season.

Morris will be one of 20 Division I-FBS players honored by the College Football Performance Awards when they make the official announcement on Jan. 11, 2010. The awards will be announced coinciding with the re-launching of their website at www.collegefootballperformance.com.

The purpose of the College Football Performance Awards is to provide the most scientifically rigorous conferments in college football. Recipients are selected exclusively based upon objective scientific rankings of the extent to which individual players increase the overall effectiveness of their teams.

As prominent scholars from a wide variety of disciplines note, CFPA eliminates the politics and biases that vitiate balloting-based awards. Furthermore, CFPA is the only awards organization to receive praise from both Republican and Democratic White House officials for promoting objectivity and fairness in college football.
